My skin regiment

I don't usually post photos like this... but I have to. Recently I've made some big changes with my skincare. In the past I hadn't put much effort in taking care of my skin and I'm slowly having to correct what I've done. I had a bad habit of not removing my make up before bed as well as using the wrong products for my skin type. 

Since I've been solely purchasing my cosmetics from Sephora; I decided to try some of their skincare products. Typically I bought my skin care products from Target. Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, generic brands, etc. and I noticed horrible dry, flaky patches, or an oily combination. I've never had issues with acne or tons of pimples but I've had my fair share.

Really Apple, really?!?!

I purchased my iPad 3 the day it was released back in March 2012. So today I hear about the new iPad Mini and I think ‘aw cute’ until I then read about a possible iPad 4?? Really?!? 6 months and my device is damn near obsolete?!? Or at least it’s on the fast track to becoming ‘vintage’. C’mon. Does Apple not realize that the original ‘antique’ iPad barely came out in 2010?? It’s ridiculous!! Way to piss off your loyal customers, Apple. I’ve already made up my mind and I have no desire to upgrade to the iPhone 5. What’s the point?? Once my 2 years are up you may be nearing the iPhone 8. Smh. Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPad 3 but just the thought that its soon to be the ‘older’ new iPad in less than 7 months is not cool.

Big Daddy Biscuits

I used this recipe on Saturday morning to make some biscuits and it was amazing!! Super simple and the came out fabulous.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15 to 20 times. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
**I did a double batch and used a biscuit cutter to cut the dough close to 1 inch (I didn't measure exactly) and ended up cooking them a little longer because they were thicker. They would have been perfect for biscuits and gravy but I ended up just having them with strawberry jam and honey w/ butter. I will for sure next time. 

I found the recipe here: JP's Big Daddy Biscuits
